Comedy Role For Movie Tough Guy Mem Ferda

Posted by Karen Benardello On November - 18 - 2012 0 Comment

British actor Mem Ferda is moving away from his signature dramatic film performances with a cameo appearance in the upcoming British comedy ‘Gridiron UK.’ The actor, who has garnered attention in America recently with last year’s acclaimed biography thriller drama ‘The Devil’s Double’ and last month’s English remake of the Danish crime thriller ‘Pusher,’ plays Sidekick in ‘Gridiron UK.’

Of the comedy, which was directed and co-written by Gary Delaney, Ferda said “this is my first ever comedy feature film in sixteen years. Its exciting to be a part of it. It is a very funny script and a unique idea, so I wanted to be involved as a co-producer, as well as doing a cameo role within the film.”

‘Gridiron UK,’ which is based on a true story and will be released in Spring 2013, is set in 1985 in Crewe, Chesire, England. Eleven British men try-out for the newly formed American Football team, the Crewe Railroaders. Derek, played by Michael Dixon, bluffs his way into becoming the self assigned owner of the team. James, portrayed by Dorsey Levens, becomes the new coach of the team, even though he knows nothing about American Football. The team’s physiotherapist knows nothing about injuries, and the cheerleaders don’t know how to dance or cheer. But Derek goes on a quest to succeed at all costs, even at the expense of everything he holds dear to him.
